STOP GAMESTOP : BOYCOTT
GAMESTOP has done a few shady things over the years that I've happily of overlooked mostly because I'm a lazy bastard that just wants to get his game on quick and on the cheap. But the practice of opening new games and handling the discs and then selling the game as new is bullshit.
I don't know if this is happening in your neck of the woods, but here in New York, this shit is prevalent and getting on my fucking nerves. I know that these fuckers sign out used games to play at home, whats to stop them from playing with the "new" inventory? or selling me a used resurfaced game as "new" just by putting it in a nice shiny brand new case.
I define new the same way most stores do, once the seal is broken I got news for you, it's not new.
So to wrap this rant up, I'll get my new games from J&R or Best Buy or any other reputable game seller that doesn't tamper with the packaging and my used games will come from Ebay ( I'll take my chances) where deals are plenty.
As for Gamestop, you've lost at least one buyer entirely. Good luck when everything goes digital Assholes.
